I am so excited, thank you for the hard work Jas and team <3


olm's finally being slightly nerf'd. Now if only Fire Gecko's weren't such a consistent run killer.

For the record I absolutely love this game and I know balancing it all out is so much work in its own right. Keep being awesome!


The Goilden bow was a typo?! I was convinced that it was the real thing!

Speak of the angel, I got softlocked in that fight with the 4 skinks mere minutes before this was posted.

This was a very quick hotfix, great job!

Putting that on the aside, I enjoy the gameplay gimmick of the skinks, this does make slow a good status condition to use because without an item like the spiky club, it is very difficult to kill them cleanly they will simply shield themselves up each time they get hit.

Though, one worry I do have is that might make them unkillable without a weapon because scratch only does 3 damage and they block 3 each time they get hit.
